Give it too Garland

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

As Martin Luther King once said..

"do not judge me by the color of my skin but the content of my character"

Biden will choose by the color of the person's skin not by the content of her character"

1 ( +11 / -10 )

I don't care what skin color or gender....just pick the best candidate who will uphold our Constitution and stop highlighting the persons race/gender. That just detracts from the persons qualifications.

I think it is important to have equal representation of the citizenry at the highest levels of the land, but Biden seems to be focusing only on skin color and gender. His entire staff is made up of nothing but diversity hires. Not to be disrespectful , but VP Harris is a prime example of why you don’t pick someone just because of their skin color and gender. As nice as she is, she’s proven that skin color and gender have zero effect on one’s ability to successfully perform their duties and excel at their job.

Spot on.

Yeah, it worked out well when he chose his VP based on her pigmentation and possession of a uterus. What could go wrong? Excluding 90% of the population for a job based on their race and gender used to be called discrimination. I guess now it is called business as usual for this administration...

I’m just thankful Justice Breyer decided to retire before McConnell has the opportunity to put a 2 year hold on the seat. Because everyone here knows he would. And then he’d tell us that it was the Founders intent that the Senate majority refuse to fill a Supreme Court seat if the Pres was from the other party, regardless of how much time remained in the term. Then he’d accuse Schumer of trying to break the Senate and Cruz would call it all political theatre

Well, not sure what the liberals are celebrating about, the man will be replaced with another liberal or activist judge. You’re just swapping the justices not gaining or losing, but it is within Biden’s right, my problem is that Biden wants to put a black woman on the seat. I thought you want to get someone nominated based on merit, ability, the rule of law and upholding the constitution and it seems Biden is just solely focused on color and wants to make it his main prerequisite in selecting a nominee.

Smh….

why MUST it be a Black woman? voter pandering.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Justice wears a blindfold, ideally weighing only internal merits.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

What a shocker.

Ok, so what’s more important, the skin color or the ability to judge accordingly to how the Constitution was written? Biden, once again is confusing us.

Zichi, what purpose would expanding the Court serve? Once the Republicans win an election, they could just exapand it again to 21, or return it to 15 and get rid of the most recent appointees. That is very short term thinking, based solely on the fact that you dont like the perceived political leanings of the Justices. Well, the court leaned left for a considerable number of years before the current one, and I dont recall there being a call to increase the size.

I WOULD go for a mandatory retirement age for Justices though- say 75 years old. Same for politicians would be nice.

I think if Trump was capable of electing three judges based not on them being the best judges but the best conservative republican

I disagree. Following the Constitution is the priority.

judges then Biden won't have a problem with his selection. Even the last one, Amy Coney Barrett wasn't put on hold until after the election. No sir.

Again, Biden can select anyone he wants, it’s not a big move, but it is his to make the choice, but it’s not a done deal, the person he selects will still have to go through a vigorous hearing vetting process.

The media is claiming that being able to appoint someone to the Supreme Court will be the defining moment of the entrie Biden presidency.

I think immigration, economy, inflation, crime, failed legislation and 33% approval say otherwise. 72% say country headed in wrong direction and this won’t change that.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

Heck, I'd say get Trump's list and have a look - as many times as Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Coney-Barret have sided with the Left against him, we'd get another win for Team Blue...

1 ( +2 / -1 )

But he appointed THREE, not just one who they forcing to retire before they lose in 9 months.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

OK Zichi, fair enough .What is your reasoning for expanding the court? What purpose would it serve? And what would prevent a future administration from rolling it back?

1 ( +3 / -2 )

 It would allow the court to take many more cases and address some of the urgent issues that it currently neglects

of course it would have to be 8 Dems and 7 Republicans right? is that just a coincidence?

There are 9 now, so need to add 6 more, 3 of each would be fair.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Nah Blacklabel, y’all cheated on Garland and ACB…

Ok so that’s 1. Why do you get all 6 of the 6 new ones liberals propose?

Isn’t any number ok really as long as 1 more is a Democrat?

Well, not really. It depends on the issue that is presented before the court. Biden got pummeled two weeks ago on the Vax mandate and voting rights, so it’s not clear cut and again, the confirmation hearings will be tough, ask Garland, he’ll tell you.

No, but thank the lord he didn’t make it looking back in hindsight.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Why would republicans agree to that? You know good and well the “no party” judges would vote Democrat.

regardless Biden can do what he wants NOW. If he doesn’t do it correctly and fairly, Repubs can impeach him and his VP then add 6 more Republicans to the court after November.
